StencilGirl® Products & Resketch Color Journal Collaboration

Marsha Valk | StencilGirl®: Resketch Collab Journal

Marsha Valk | StencilGirl®: Resketch Collab JournalHi there! I’ve got a special post for you today!

In February and March I worked my way through a wonderful little Resketch journal as part of the StencilGirl® Products & Resketch Color Collaboration organised by StencilGirl® columnist Tina Walker.

For this collaboration, all of the participants received a journal gifted by Resketch. I chose the 3.5 x 5-inch journal.

To fill the journal we were only allowed to use ONE colour + black and white. I chose ultramarine.

And, as this was a collab for the StencilGirl® Talk Blog, the only stencils we were allowed to use were stencils by StencilGirl® Products. All of the other materials I used were my own choice.

Watch the video above for a quick flip through of the journal!

Please note that the journal featured in this post was gifted to me by Resketch. I’m also a columnist for the StencilGirl® Talk Blog, so though I did not receive any compensation for participating in this collaboration, the majority of the stencils I used to fill the pages were previously given to me or purchased with a discount!

n*Studio | Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Marsha Valk | n*Studio: Coffee Filter Flowers

Just in case you missed it: it was my turn on the n*Studio blog last week! Which means that it’s time to share last month’s project with you here!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Last month the n*Studio Creative Squad used what we already had, in an attempt to make our carbon footprint just a tiny bit smaller.

I recycled a recent project idea and shared another take on my Gelli Arts® Gel Printed Coffee Filter Flowers. These are so much fun to make!
